Eco Glamping in the Peak District
EcoPod Holidays offers unique eco accommodation for some of the most breath-taking corners of the Derbyshire Dales in the Peak District. EcoPods are suitable for couples, families or small groups (dependent on current Covid19 restrictions).
Each of the five EcoPods are different inside. They have been made locally in Kniveton just down the road from the Knockerdown Inn.
Each EcoPod is fully insulated with its own log burner, hot shower, equipped mini kitchen, and phone charging facilities. We have worked hard to provide an environmentally friendly camping / glamping experience we know you will enjoy. This Glamping site is totally off grid and was supported by the Peak District National Park through a New Enviromental Econmy grant from the EU with a grant in 2006.
The site itself is grassy, peaceful and private, with a central fire pit, willow dome and access to its very own pub and playground.
The site is also dog friendly.
About our Ecopod Camping Experiences
Each Pod has been lovingly handmade with natural materials sourced locally from the surrounding landscape.
The concept behind the EcoPods is to provide a cosy, warm and sustainable living space made from 50% recycled wood which gives each EcoPod a unique character externally clad with locally source heartwood Larch which will last for a lifetime.
They provide all the comforts of home as well as immediate access to the beautiful countryside.
The pods are designed with the full scope of all the English seasons in mind – and there is no better stage for each to be showcased than the Derbyshire Dales. If you want to go camping in style and comfort, then this is for you!
From wildflower meadows in the spring to crimson theatres of colour in the autumn, all of this is quite literally on the Eco Pods’ doorstep.
As well as boasting easy access to the dramatically contrasting landscapes of the Peak District and an abundance of idyllic walking and cycle routes, the site is also within close proximity to quaint market towns such as Wirksworth and Bakewell.
Eco Glamping Camping for Derbyshire
The site is also located within walking distance of Carsington Water Water Sports Center where you can try your hand at water sports such as paddel boarding, sailing, canoeing and windsurfing; or walk, cycle around the 9-mile perimeter of the stunning reservoir.
You can also hire bikes from the Water Sports center.
Energy levels can be restocked at the café restaurant (famous for its delicious cake), before a lazy afternoon of birdwatching or browsing the boutique shops.
If you’ve brought the kids, you can wear them at the adventure playground before heading back to the cosy local pub for some hearty home-cooked grub.
We are only a short drive away are attractions such as Chatsworth Estate, Alton Towers and Derbyshire’s very own ‘seaside’, Matlock Bath.
